Meghan Markle, Prince Harry chose these special people to be two of Archie’s godparents: report

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle christened their son, Archie Harrison, in July, but decided to keep the family affair private.

They broke royal tradition by keeping the identities of the baby’s godparents a secret until now. It’s been revealed by The Sunday Times that the Duke of Sussex chose two very special people in his life for the honor.

The first is Prince Harry and Prince William’s childhood nanny, Tiggy Pettifer (formerly Tiggy Legge-Bourke), who helped raise the brothers after their mother Princess Diana died. She was named a godmother.

And one of Archie’s godfathers is reportedly Mark Dyer, an equerry who served Prince Charles. Dyer later mentored and became a friend of Prince Harry.

Pettifer and Dyer both attended Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May 2018. Dyer’s son Jasper – whom Harry is the godfather of – acted as a page boy in Meghan’s bridal party. Harry is also godfather to Pettifer’s son, Tom.

During the summer, Buckingham Palace released an official statement regarding details of Archie’s christening.

“The godparents, in keeping with their wishes, will remain private,” the statement read at the time.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex look forward to sharing some images taken on the day by photographer Chris Allerton,” it continued. “Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor will be christened in a small private ceremony by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday 6th July.”

Present on the day was Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, Archie’s uncle and aunt, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, as well as Harry’s father Prince Charles, his wife Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall, and the late Princess Diana’s two sisters, Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodal.

Paraguay investigates prison escape of at least 75 ‘highly dangerous’ inmates through tunnel

Officials in Paraguay were investigating the mass escape of at least 75 “highly dangerous” inmates, including members of Brazil’s most infamous gang, from a prison on Sunday through a tunnel they dug, authorities said.

The tunnel and as many as 200 bags of earth stashed in cells were discovered at the city jail in Pedro Juan Caballero near the border with Brazil, police and government officials said.

The operation was “like we see in the movies, complete with internal lighting,” police spokeswoman Elena Andrada said, according to AFP.

Government officials said they suspect prison officials were aware of the operation, firing the prison’s director and six other officials following the escape, Reuters reported.

“It’s not possible that nobody saw anything in all this time,” Justice Minister Cecilia Pérez told the Telefuturo station. “This isn’t the work of one day or one night.”

INMATE CARVES WAY OUT OF JAIL AND IS ON THE RUN, TEXAS POLICE SAY

Interior Minister Euclides Acevedo said in a statement that the tunnel itself may have been a ruse to cover complicity by prison officials and that many of the inmates may have been allowed to walk out of the prison’s main gate.

The majority of the escapees belong to the First Capital Command based in Brazil, Acevedo said. The gang was founded in the 1990s inside a Sao Paulo prison and it has extended its influence throughout the country.

Acevedo said national police had been mobilized to hunt for the escapees, believing them to still be in Paraguay.

“In that area, there are many woods and they know the territory … these are highly dangerous people,” Paraguayan Attorney General Sandra Quinonez told radio station Monumental, according to Reuters.

In Brazil, the government increased security along its border to help Paraguay capture any escapees trying to cross into the country, Justice Minister Sergio Moro said.

“If they enter Brazil again, they will only get a one-way ticket to federal prison,” he tweeted.

Paris Hilton reveals her ‘blonde airhead’ persona on ‘The Simple Life’ was a character

Paris Hilton revealed that the “blonde airhead” persona she had on her breakout reality TV hit, “The Simple Life,” was just a character she was portraying.

The 38-year-old celebrity spoke with People at the TV Critics Association press tour event for her upcoming YouTube documentary “This is Paris” where she revealed that the public has a lot of misconceptions about her after she played the ditzy, spoiled heiress version of herself on “The Simple Life” from 2003 until 2005.

PARIS HILTON ADMITS SHE STOLE ‘THAT’S HOT’ PHRASE FROM THIS STAR

“I knew what I was doing but the whole world didn’t, so it was kind of frustrating to me to be perceived in that way because it’s not who I am at all,” she told the outlet at the event. “But it was such an amazing and entertaining show that I would just think of it as entertainment.”

Hilton went on to confess that the mean jokes people made about her still hurt, but that she’s learned to understand why they were thrown in her direction.

“Obviously, I’ve grown as a person,” she said. “I’m an adult now, but just to be judged and have so many misconceptions based on a character that I had invented myself was frustrating.”

“At the same time, I built a huge brand off doing it,” she continued. “So, I don’t really regret it and I’m happy that people are going to finally see this film.”

PARIS HILTON DEBUTS WEEKLY ‘COOKING WITH PARIS’ YOUTUBE SERIES, MAKES ‘INFAMOUS’ LASAGNA AS FIRST DISH

Hilton echoed these sentiments to the crowd that was in attendance to hear about her more serious production, “This is Paris,” which will not only give viewers a peek into the life and mind of the real Paris Hilton, but reveal an untold story about past trauma as well.

“I was having fun with it. I think, you know, I was in on the joke. People thought that’s who I really was, so sometimes it is annoying that people assume that I am kind of that, you know, blonde airhead that I was playing on the show,” she explained. “But I love, also, proving people wrong and any time they meet me in real life they’re always very surprised. So, it makes me happy to know that I created something that basically started an entire new generation of people.”

The First Super Bowl Twitter Fight Just Broke Out, And It’s A Doozy

Westlake Legal Group 5e25d0c12400003300dd12e5 The First Super Bowl Twitter Fight Just Broke Out, And It’s A Doozy

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman was still playing defense after his team beat the Green Bay Packers on Sunday to advance to the Super Bowl.

While Sherman’s interception late in the game sealed the 37-20 victory in the NFC championship game, a former rival was talking smack about him as Sherman celebrated his third trip to the Super Bowl. (He won one with Seattle.)

Former NFL great Darrelle Revis was indeed one of the best cover men in the game, but why diss now?

Revis, who retired in 2018, blasted Sherman for “hiding” in zone coverage and claimed he was afraid of defending receivers man-to-man.

“All y’all think I’m throwing shade,” the former New York Jet wrote. “I’m not. Just stating the man is not a pound for pound man to man corner.”

Like the rest of the league, Revis is probably aware that Sherman talks a good game, too. The ex-Stanford star came out the better in a feisty Twitter joust. “I would go in on this has been but I have a Super bowl to prepare for. Enjoy the view from the couch,” he wrote to Revis.

He then threw shade at a later stage of Revis’ career.

Revis clapped back with statistical ammo and warned Sherman that he will have to cover a tough and speedy Kansas City Chiefs receiving corps in the Super Bowl on Feb. 2 in Miami. Sherman clearly had energy to burn after the game because he kept zinging back into the wee hours on Monday. He also offered Revis a spelling lesson and a visual reminder that he made mistakes, too.

To be fair, Revis has a Super Bowl victory to his credit with the New England Patriots (which beat Sherman’s Seahawks) and he has three interceptions to Sherman’s four in the postseason, NBC noted.

But Revis loses points for pettiness. Victory to Sherman.

Human-to-human transmission of coronavirus in China confirmed

A new coronavirus sickening dozens in China is transmissible between humans, officials confirmed, sparking fears that the illness may spread more quickly than previously believed.

Chinese government officials said two people in the country’s southern province had caught the virus from family members, and several medical workers who had treated patients tested positive for the illness.

“The recent outbreak of novel coronavirus pneumonia in Wuhan and other places must be taken seriously,” President Xi Jiping said, according to The Associated Press. “Party committees, governments and relevant departments at all levels should put people’s lives and health first.”

CDC ANNOUNCES ‘ENHANCED HEALTH SCREENINGS’ AT 3 MAJOR US AIRPORTS

For weeks officials had reported the number of cases to be at least 41, with no new cases believed to have been contracted since early January. However, in their most recent update authorities said the number had risen to over 200. The early cases had been tied to a seafood market in Wuhan, but since then authorities in other regions have confirmed illnesses in residents. At least three deaths have been linked to the pneumonia-like illness.

The outbreak has spurred other countries to warn the millions of travelers boarding planes and trains for the Lunar New Year holidays. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), announced “enhanced health screenings” for airline passengers arriving from or traveling through the Wuhan province. San Francisco International Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport all began the initiative on Jan. 17.

CHINA COUNTS SHARP RISE IN CORONAVIRUS CASES DURING COUNTRY’S BUSIEST TRAVEL TIME

South Korea, Japan and Thailand have all reported cases of the virus. Officials are still scrambling to determine its origin. The virus has sparked fears of a SARS re-emergence, but officials have been quick to shut down those theories.

Chinese authorities have been in contact with the World Health Organization (WHO), which is also monitoring the situation. Many patients are reporting fever, cough and shortness of breath. Officials across several health agencies urge anyone who has recently visited the Wuhan region to seek medical attention once suspected symptoms develop.

Ahead Of Arguments, Trump’s Legal Team Calls Impeachment Case Against Him Flimsy

Westlake Legal Group 5e25d9372400003100dd12ef Ahead Of Arguments, Trump’s Legal Team Calls Impeachment Case Against Him Flimsy

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s legal team asserted Monday that he did “absolutely nothing wrong,” calling the impeachment case against him flimsy and a “dangerous perversion of the Constitution.”

The brief from Trump’s lawyers, filed ahead of arguments expected later this week in the Senate impeachment trial, offered the most detailed glimpse of the lines of defense they intend to use against Democratic efforts to convict the president and oust him from office over his dealings with Ukraine. It is meant as a counter to a brief filed two days ago by House Democrats that summarized weeks of testimony from more than a dozen witnesses in laying out the impeachment case.

The 110-page filing from the White House shifted the tone toward a more legal response but still hinged on Trump’s assertion he did nothing wrong and did not commit a crime — even though impeachment does not depend on a material violation of law but rather on the more vague definition of “other high crimes and misdemeanors” as established in the Constitution.

It says the two articles of impeachment brought against the president — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — don’t amount to impeachment offenses. It asserts that the impeachment inquiry centered on Trump’s request that Ukraine’s president open an investigation into Democratic rival Joe Biden was never about finding the truth.

“Instead, House Democrats were determined from the outset to find some way — any way — to corrupt the extraordinary power of impeachment for use as a political tool to overturn the result of the 2016 election and to interfere in the 2020 election,” Trump’s legal team wrote. “All of that is a dangerous perversion of the Constitution that the Senate should swiftly and roundly condemn.”

The prosecution team of House managers was expected to spend another day on Capitol Hill preparing for the trial, which will be under heavy security. Ahead of the filing, House prosecutors arrived on Capitol Hill to tour the Senate chamber. Opening arguments are expected within days following a debate over rules.

The White House brief argues that the articles of impeachment passed by the House are “structurally deficient” because they charge multiple acts, creating “a menu of options” as possible grounds for conviction.

The Trump team claims that the Constitution requires that senators agree “on the specific basis for conviction” and that there is no way to ensure that the senators agree on which acts are worthy of removal. Senior administration officials argued that similar imprecision in the articles applied to the multi-part article of impeachment for perjury in the Bill Clinton impeachment trial.

They accused Democrats of diluting the standards for impeachment, an argument that echoed the case made Sunday by one of Trump’s attorneys, Alan Dershowitz, who contended on a series of talk shows that impeachable offenses must be “criminal-like conduct.” That assertion has been rejected by scholars, and Rep. Adam Schiff, the Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, called it an “absurdist position.”

New poll: Biden with slight edge in Iowa with caucuses 2 weeks out

With two weeks to go until the Iowa caucuses, a new poll indicates that former Vice President Joe Biden has a slight edge over his 2020 rivals for the Democratic nomination in the state that kicks off the presidential primary and caucus calendar.

Biden stands at 24 percent support among likely Democratic caucusgoers in Iowa in the survey released Monday by Focus on Rural America, which touts itself as a non-partisan organization pushing progressive causes and promoting economic messages for rural America.

IOWA WIDE OPEN AHEAD OF CAUCUSES, WITH MANY DEMOCRATIC VOTERS STILL UNDECIDED

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts registers at 18 percent, with former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 16 percent, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont at 14 percent, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar of neighboring Minnesota at 11 percent.

While Biden’s numbers were basically unchanged from the Focus on Rural America’s previous poll – released in September – Warren dropped 5 percentage points, Sanders soared 5 points, Buttigieg jumped 4 points and Klobuchar rose 3 points.

Billionaire environmental and progressive advocate Tom Steyer stands at 4 percent support in the survey, with tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang at 3 percent. Everyone else tested registered at 1 percent or less.

The poll was conducted Jan. 15-18, with 500 likely Democratic caucus-goers in Iowa questioned by live telephone operators.

The survey was taken after last Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate in Iowa and seems to suggest that the prime-time clash between Sanders and Warren over sexism in politics and whether or not Sanders told Warren in a private conversation just over a year ago that a female candidate couldn’t beat President Trump in 2020 has negatively impacted both candidates.

When asked if there’s a candidate they wouldn’t support based on the debate, 12 percent of respondents said Warren and 11 percent said Sanders. Steyer was a distant third at 4 percent.

Biden’s advantage in Iowa in the new poll is similar to findings from a Monmouth University survey in the Hawkeye State released a week ago. A Des Moines Register/CNN survey also conducted ahead of the debate indicated Sanders on top of the field.

Prince Harry meets with Boris Johnson for one-on-one catch up following ‘Megxit’ deal

Prince Harry sat down for a one-on-one conversation with U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson following the Duke of Sussex’s somber speech to the public on Sunday.

Harry spoke with Johnson at the UK-Africa Investment Summit Monday in an effort to boost Britain’s standing as a potential business partner with Africa, despite the swirling drama over his decision to break from official royal duties.

According to The Telegraph, Harry carried out what is possibly one of his last royal duties by meeting with the Prime Minister at the summit for a 20-minute, closed-door meeting where neither men’s aids were reportedly present.

MEGHAN MARKLE IS ONLY ROYAL FAMILY MEMBER HAPPY WITH ‘MEGXIT’ DEAL: ROYAL EXPERT

Although it’s unclear specifically what was discussed, the duo later touted the U.K. as an ideal business partner for Africa at the summit as the country prepares to navigate its post-Brexit dealings with the international community.

Prince Harry has longstanding ties to Africa and is involved with conservation and youth charities on the continent. He has repeatedly said he plans to continue those endeavors even after he and Meghan Markle carry out their plans to leave the U.K. to take up part-time residence in Canada after making the historic decision to “step back” from their royal duties.

In a speech given at a dinner for supporters of the Sentebale charity in London Sunday, the prince addressed why he and his wife chose to relinquish their “royal highness” titles and move to Canada.

MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY EXPECTED TO STILL RECEIVE FUNDS FROM PRINCE CHARLES: REPORT

“Before I begin, I must say that I can only imagine what you may have heard, or perhaps read, over the past few weeks,” Harry began. “So, I want you to hear the truth from me — as much as I can share, not as a prince or a duke, but as Harry, the same person that many of you have watched grow up over the past 35 years, but now with a clearer perspective.”

“The U.K. is my home and a place that I love. That will never change,” he continued. “I have grown up feeling supported by so many of you, and I watched as you welcomed Meghan with open arms, as you saw the love and happiness that I had hoped for all my life. Finally, the second son of Diana got hitched, hooray!”

Harry then stressed that he and Markle still held the same values, and she’s still the same woman he’s loved. He also recounted the excitement they felt when they began their journey together, and addressed the “great sadness” he feels at the situation becoming so dire.

“The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly,” the prince said. “It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven’t always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option.
